Even long-snapper Clark Harris could barely walk on the sideline because of a groin injury.
In the second half, the Bills forced five straight three and outs and only allowed four total first downs in the final two quarters of play. The Bengals' offense did not score again. He has a career-high four interceptions this season and 13 in his career. His return was probable, but not before the Bills went 75 yards on eight plays to take a 7-0 lead with 8:52 left in the first quarter.
The journey they have embarked on is an arduous one, to say the least: If they want to make the National Football League playoffs this season, they have to win at least six of their final seven games, maybe all seven, and that meant they could not stub their toe against the spiraling Bengals. As Green fell to the turf at Paul Brown Stadium, he immediately grabbed the back of his right leg. It should also mean a bigger role for TE Tyler Eifert. At halftime, the Bengals held onto a 12-10 lead.
The Bengals scored twice in the first half, but kicker Mike Nugent missed both extra points.
After the Bills intercepted Dalton and ran the ball back to the Bengals' 3-yard line, Cincinnati's defense pushed them back to the 8-yard line. What makes the injury more concerning is the fact that Green went down on a non-contact play.
A last-ditch effort guided the Bengals down the field, as Cincinnati took advantage of the Bills' prevent defense to give itself one last chance, but it was too late.
Linebacker Rey Maualuga appears to be a healthy scratch for the Cincinnati Bengals today against the Buffalo Bills and the No. 2 rushing offense in the NFL.
The Buffalo Bills are listing Robert Woods as questionable against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11.
